Hartford, CT– The Connecticut League of Conservation Voters (CTLCV) has endorsed Jan Hochadel (D) to represent the 13th Senate District of the Connecticut General Assembly including the towns of Cheshire, Meriden, Middlefied, and Middletown.
To receive CTLCV’s endorsement, all candidates must complete a survey on the environment. Endorsements are issued based on their interview, responses to the survey, and demonstrated leadership on specific issues. Jan Hochadel’s survey responses were strongly supportive of key issues that we expect to see in the 2023 legislative session.
As a teacher, Jan Hochadel fought for legislation to improve indoor air quality in schools so children can learn in a clean and healthy environment. She is also a leader on carbon-neutral school buses to reduce children’s exposure to unhealthy air to and from school.
Jan Hochadel knows that investing in clean energy will bring more jobs to Connecticut, reduce pollution, and achieve our state goal of 100% clean electric power. With her tenacity and dedication to worker’s rights, she will prioritize retraining people in the building trades for a new sustainable economy that includes construction of energy-efficient buildings, solar power, and electric vehicle infrastructure.
“Jan Hochadel understands the threat that climate change poses to our future. We need her at the Capitol to fight for laws that will protect our environment and put us on the path to a green economy,” said Lori Brown, CTLCV Executive Director.
The CT League of Conservation Voters (CTLCV) is a nonpartisan statewide organization dedicated to protecting Connecticut’s environment. CTLCV works to pass equitable legislation that impacts our air, land, water, wildlife, and climate and holds all state legislators accountable with an annual Environmental Scorecard.
